My Birthday Buddies!

Aren’t these birthday buddies the cutest you’ve ever seen? Dave’s birthday was yesterday, April 26th and Sadie’s birthday is today, April 27th! (If you want the fun birth story – click here.)

For Dave’s birthday we went to our favorite German restaurant Oak Chalet. We had a nice meal and Sadie enjoyed running back and forth in our booth and bothering the birthday boy.

Today Sadie woke up and was reluctant to get out of bed until I told her that someone was waiting for her outside her room. She came out and saw that we had surprised her with a kitty! Not a real one (hello, allergies) but a FurReal Friends Kitty that plays peek-a-boo, purrs, etc. She LOVED it and demanded to take it to school with her – as you’ll see from pictures below.

My birthday girl – will always take a moment to stop and admire beauty.

Loves hard – her family, her friends, animals (stuffed or real).

Is full of sass. She is spirited, kind, funny, loving, good natured and smart as all hell.

Is four years old today! Someone hold me as I weep.

I’m so thankful that she was feeling well for her birthday. Sadie had a bad cough and cold starting last week and came down with a fever Sunday night. She kept us up all Sunday evening and we took her to the doctor Monday morning (after trying to get some more sleep first.) She had 102 and was super hot to the touch and just not herself. Luckily she tested negative for strep and the flu, so it was probably just viral. She tends to run high fevers but I was still nervous she’d be sick all week and out of commission both for her birthday and her party.

Luckily she was pretty much back to normal yesterday but I still kept her home just to rest. So lucky Dave got to have a semi-sick toddler with him on his birthday – Happy Birthday Dave – here’s a sick toddler! 😉

And Dave – Happy Birthday to you! You may be 37 now (god you’re OLD) but since you still get ID’d often I’d say you look pretty good for your age. I love you, thank you for being my partner in life and being such an amazing dad to Sadie.
